    Just heard this article from Iowa: https://www.wbur.org/hereandnow/2019/04/10/snow-iowa-mayor-flooding

    The mayor was lamenting how they HAD to get a levee built to protect it when they rebuild (in the flood plain).

    The mayor also lamented that the Federal government needed to step up:

    "we need the government to do what we can't do. But if you could see these people, what they're doing to try to put this town back together, they're worth it"

    Sure sounds like socialism to me.

    Also saw this OBVIOUSLY socialist statement in a fairly important federal document:

    "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare"

    Socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor.
